Infrastructure & Records

The Infrastructure and Records Office is responsible for the facility condition assessment and inspection of all buildings and infrastructure at the three George Mason University campuses, and the history files and records for those assets. Examples of the files and records include the final project as-built drawings, and equipment and material submittals and catalog cuts. The Office works closely with the other Physical Plant departments, especially Contracts and Operations, to verify the accuracy of project scope and documentation.

Our Collections

The Facilities Archives holds architectural and engineering drawings, specifications, studies, maintenance manuals, shop drawing, construction submittals, and other related construction and maintenance project documentation regarding GMU buildings and property.
